With Thanksgiving knocking on the door it's the perfect time of year to make some. I was feeling overly ambitious on Saturday and actually managed to make these pie and then sought out my usual corner to rest and congratulate myself at my accomplishment. I think I understand now why my mother was so pleased with herself for baking 13 pie a few weeks before one of my brothers was born. And though I only made three it still felt like a major accomplishment!
Notice the layers?
1½ cup pumpkin
1½ cup white sugar
1½ cup brown sugar
4½ Tbsp. flour
1 tsp salt
½ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp cloves
1 tsp cinnamon
4 eggs, separated
4½ cup milk
In a large bowl combine pumpkin, sugars, spices, salt, and flou. Mix well. Separate the eggs. Reserve the whites in a small bowl and add the yolks to your pumpkin mixture. Mix well. Add milk and mix again. Now beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Fold evenly into pumpkin mixture. Divide into three 9 or 10 inch unbaked pie crusts. I prefer using this recipe to make the crusts.
Bake in a preheated 350º oven for 45 minutes.
The pie looks delicious! Thank you for sharing the recipe.ReplyDelete
I'm starting to feel the countdown crunch for Thanksgiving, too.
Have a great day!
Looks delicious! I love just about anything pumpkin. I look forward to this time of the year so when I get gas in my car I sometimes treat myself to pumpkin cappuccino.ReplyDelete
Thankyou! I've been searching for the perfect pumpkin pie recipe and this just might be it!ReplyDelete
I've heard about pumpkin pie but never had it. It's not made here in Australia.ReplyDelete
Pity, because pumpkin is delish!
I love pumpkin… pie, custard, ice cream… I’ve been experimenting with recipes that sweeten it with honey. The challenge I have is with the crust. Do you know how to make and bake a crust that does not end up soggy at the bottom and sides?ReplyDelete
I have an undying devotion to pumpkin, and that pie looks delicious!ReplyDelete
I made three of these pies with yourReplyDelete
recipe. It is delicious. I might decreased the sugar a little next time. Warning! This pie will not last long and is not good for the waistline.lol!
